    Here it is...

    As some say I continue my "dickriding" with Strandberg here...
    Was able to snap the last Custom Shop neckthrough from the website!
    Super happy with the specs of this one:

    alder body, deeeeeply roasted maple and birdseye maple neck, Lundgren The One / Modern Vintage pickups. They still sound super moder and dry, but I guess a bit warmer than the M serie. The neckthrough design on the Boden is just awesome.

    Here are the pics

    Wow thats a beautiful piece of wood, one of the most amazing Strandbergs I've ever seen. How much was that one? Is that a painted roasted neck? If not, that's a really deep roast indeed.

    I wanted to buy this one when it was on the site but the price made me pee myself a little.

    Damn that's nice. I might buy another Boden when the neck through production line goes live, or when the J models stop being so overpriced (ie. never)

    I would do nasty things for a neck through boden. They're so hard to find these days....

    Happy NGD, you got a really good geet there.

    Well after some time with this one, I would heavily recommend the Lundgren The One pickup to anybody wanting a modern and tight sounding pickups that sounds a bit less sterile than the M series...

    As i like roasted maple, this is total overkill :lol:
    Nice neck-body joint. NTB is unbeatable in this department. Congrats.

    If that’s what you get when you buy a Strandberg, show me where the dicks at!!! Lol

    Lovely axe...I mean, that is the only guitar that I’ve seen come close to the Music Man (as Steve Vai pointed out actually).....

    Gorgeous, and I love the pickups, best 7 string metal pup IMHO!!!

    (I hate to ask, but did you mention what this set you back, approximately??? I’d love to know what something like this might run, or just the base level for a Strandberg 7 string)

    Happy NGD
